Balanced Rock of the Garden of the Gods

Colorado Springs, CO, United States
19 Kudos
There are many spots that you can find interesting in the Garden of the Gods like Mesa Overlook, Kissing Camels, and the Garden of the Gods Trading Post, but one of the most well-known features in the park is Balanced Rock and Steamboat Rock right next to the Balanced Rock. When we looked at the Balanced Rock here in the Garden of the Gods, we immediately compared it with balanced rock in the Arches. While the rock in Arches is high and hanging at the top of red rock spire, the rock here in the Garden of the Gods looks enormously massive and it looks quite amazing that such gigantic rock stays in balance while the contact between the rock and the ground is surprisingly small. Certainly it is a marvelous geological wonder and compelling witness of how strong the natural erosion process is.
